Health Tip: Need Help for Brittle Nails?


(HealthDay News) -- Brittle, splitting nails are typically caused by frequently wetting and drying them.

The American Osteopathic College of Dermatologists suggests these remedies for dry, brittle nails:

  • If you're doing chores that involve wetting the nails, wear a pair of rubber gloves.
  • Avoid exposing your nails to harsh chemicals, such as detergent, polish remover or cleaning solution.
  • Apply a weekly clear-nail solution or a nail-strengthening polish.
  • Gently file and shape the nails to avoid snags and tears.
